PIERRE (AP) - Two high school students from southeast South Dakota have been selected as the state's delegates to the annual U.S. Senate Youth Program in Washington, D.C.

Manaal Ali of Harrisburg High School in Harrisburg and Caroline Moriarty of Roosevelt High School in Sioux Falls were selected. They will participate in a weeklong study of the federal government and will receive $5,000 college scholarships from the Hearst Foundations.

The two will be among the 104 delegates - two from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Activity - headed to the nation's capital in March.

The program aims to teach students about the American political process and inspire a lifelong commitment to public service.
